Sump Pump Systems
MHM Foundation Solutions offers affordable sump pump systems including basement sump pumps and crawl space sump pumps for homeowners in Pierre, Sioux Falls, Huron, and in other nearby areas. Essentially, the role of a sump pump is to collect water underneath your home and channel it out and away from your foundation so you don't have a leaky basement, wet crawl space, or structural problems. A lot of homeowners don't know much about sump pumps, and this is understandable. Sump pumps are small pumps which are typically installed in the lowest part of a basement or crawl space to prevent it from flooding during heavy rains, after snow melts, and from irrigation systems in the yard. Check our service area to see if we offer work in your area.
These sump pumps will be installed in sump pits. Water is channeled to the sump pit via a series of drains. The pump pit, once the water reaches a certain level, will then pump the water out and away from the home. Nearly 60% of homes have wet basements or leaky crawl spaces. For this reason, it's important to have a sump pump installed so that water doesn't pool up and cause severe damage to the walls and flooring underneath your home. A moist basement or crawl space can also promote the growth of hazardous mold and bacteria which can cause many different health problems for you and your loved ones.
Sump pumps installed by MHM Foundation Solutions are guaranteed to last for many years to come on your home. Low lying places are prone to flooding and moisture build-up, and this is why it's so important to get a sump pump installed if you don't already have one, or if you have an older model which is in need of replacement. A functioning sump pump will keep the area under your home dry, safe, mold and mildew free.
